Radiation poisoning and the lack of radiation shielding has been one of the biggest concerns facing deep space astronauts for decades.Radiation includes electro-magnetic radiation such as radio waves, x-rays, alpha and beta rays in addition to acoustic radiation such as ultrasound and seismic waves.

Truly determine the possibility of coming up with a safe and secure measure for deep space radiation shielding, this project tried to overcome one of the biggest challenges, the weight of the magnet, by focusing its energies on superconductors as these materials do not offer electrical resistance at incredibly low temperatures, something that is all too common in deep space.
